Where it all began…
Camino de Santiago
Last year, I walked the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrim trail in Spain that is over 900 kilometres. On that walk, the idea for this program; #heartLEADER was seeded.
On day 1 in driving rain, I walked out of my Pension in Irun in France and set off with my new walking boots, new backpack and new rain gear. That first day was over 30 kilometres to San Sebastian on the coast of Spain. Half way up the first mountain it snowed. Half way through Day 1, I really began to question WHY I was walking in Spain at all.
Day 1 was a very hard day; BUT…. by the end of Day 1, I was having dinner with a group of 6 other pilgrims. My Camino Family was formed.
My adventure finished in Santiago de Compostela, over 900 km away 40 days later. To walk 900 kilometres takes #heart.
And to be a great leader takes #heart too.
